First Finish for 2014

      Comments Off on First Finish for 2014

So, I thought that this one was going to squeak by just under the wire – finished in the last few hours of 2013…..Nope, didn’t quite make it… Really, it was almost done, but I could not, in all good conscience say that it was completed in 2013.  I actually finished it at a staff retreat on January 6th (just… Read more »

From draft dated May 20, 2013 at 6:12 am This was another finish for the Fair, which (I have to say) provided a really good impetus to actually finish such projects that had been lingering for a while – in this case for almost a year.

This came about after a raid on my favorite quilt shop (http://quiltingadventures.com/) in Richmond, Virginia.  I say raid because I left there… Read more »

Again, it’s been awhile… With the Easter holiday and Spring Break, my time at the computer has been limited.  This is the latest finish: The working title for this one was the Russian Doll Quilt.  I had gotten bits of the Russian doll print in a bag of other scraps, probably from Etsy.  Not having any other particular plan in… Read more »
